    A big glass add:

    1) double espresso
    2) sugar - depends on taste, start with maybe 1.5 tea spoons
    3) ice, crushed
    4) milk, half a cup
    5) 2/3 tablespoons of your caramel syrup (Tesco's stock the syrup)

    Fault free creamy hot chocolate

    Boil half a pint of full fat milk, turn down the heat, add 3 large heaped servings of cadburys (I prefer Green & Blacks) hot chocolate, keep whisking or stirring. Pour into a large mug, dollop of whipped cream, lush

    When I was working at the MOD we were only allowed to order Fair Trade products.....not very nice indeed. I bought in some Cadbury's hot chocolate as it was cheap at Makro and it amazingly disappeared out of the tin within a week :x

    love these, expensive tho :shock: esp when the kids want one too :x

    Home and Bargain are selling Twinnings Hot Chocolate (it's gorgeous and looks very posh as it comes in a nice tin) for £1.99. I swear by making hot choc with hot milk always - tastes so much better. The mint choc options (it's low fat but you wouldn't know) is also very popular in my house.

    The hot milk approach does seem to work well, are there any machines which are worth looking into that can produce a good hot chocolate? I've had a look around but can't find any good information on machines that do coffee and hot chocolate as no-one seems interested in the latter.

    Green & Blacks is cheapest at Sainsbury's if you have one near :thumbsup:

    Where did you get your dolce gusto for that price choc1969?

    Yeah, they use thier own brand so you can't entirely recreate the taste. But the closest are ones specifically made to be added to hot milk like green and blacks and the cadburys... but it has to be the ones you add hot milk not water, no water goes into a costa HC. It's about 5 heaped tblspoons per 1litre of milk then steamed. If you don't have a milk steamer then boil milk and whisk in the the chocolate.
    p.s. always add the choc powder AFTER the milk to avoid clumps and lack of taste

    For clump-free hot chocolate I add a splash of milk (or Baileys) to the cup and then mix the chocolate to a paste before adding the hot milk then whizzing with a frother. Tesco & Asda sell something called Spanish Chocolate which is bit pricey (£3.99 ish) but it comes in a very Gucci tin and tastes awesome.

    Only tried the hot choc in there once and it was very watery,not to my liking at all,i like the Galaxy cups you buy,just add water.

    I just noticed how old this thread was X)
